Northeast wide receiver Je'Ron Stokes turned a lot of heads this season.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior hauled in 28 receptions for 617 yards, shattering the previous school record of 420 yards. He also scored six touchdowns.

Stokes had caught the attention of several big-name colleges, including Florida, Miami (Fla.), Ohio State and Penn State.

Now, he can add Notre Dame to the list.

Fighting Irish assistant head coach John Latina talked to Northeast coach Mel Hinton during a visit to the school Tuesday, Stokes told

"He expressed how interested they are and they love my film," said Stokes, who also received a visit from North Carolina State last Monday.

The majority of Stokes' production came before he suffered a hamstring injury, which caused him to miss three games at the end of the season. The receiver, who played alongside his brother, freshman quarterback Malik, after transferring from Penn Charter, hauled in 20 receptions for 170 yards and five touchdowns during his first six games of the season.

Roman Catholic's Al Desiderio was the only city-school receiver to finish the season with more receiving yardage (656) than Stokes.

In addition to Notre Dame, Stokes has received offers from Illinois and Pittsburgh.

"Everyone has a fair shot with me," he said.

That's not the case for Roman Catholic's Jewhan Edwards. The 6-2, 320-pound defensive lineman has orally committed to Minnesota. Edwards also considered West Virginia and Syracuse.
